THE MA INK DEMOCRACY
On the 28d inst., the democracy or
MniiiK naanmhlpd nt Portland fni" '"UI1
drod and twenty-two WKic )iei"S
present. Hon. .JosoyU A 'lttooiub, ol
KonnebunV:, wna nominated lor piver
nor, unanimously. The eoinmitteo on
resolutions reported the following reso
lution, which were adopted n-ruitim,
without opposition ; alter which, there
being only one candidate to nominate,
tho convention adjourned :
Resolved, That an inflated aud irre
deemable paper currency is uuiuug tlic
worst evils that can afflict a commun
ity ; it enables cunning aud unscrupu
lous speculators to robproduccrs of the
fruits of their labor?, and alllicts every
reputable business with the peril of
continual panic and disaster. We re
gard ft currency based on specie re
sumption as the only one upon which
the business of tho country can be
safely trusted, and hold that we should
as rapidly as possible approximate to
such a circulating medium.
Resolved, That u protective tariff is
a most unjust, unequal, oppressive and
wastcfu intuit, of raisiug the public ro
venues. It is one ol Oiu must frequent
and fruitful sources of corruption of
administration ; we, thcrctorc, the no
mocracy of Maine, in convention as
sembled, declare for free trade, and in
favor of unfettered and unrestricted
llesolvcd, That the recent action of
tho republican majority in the united
.Status sonatc in attempting to rcvivo
tho worst fcaturo of the sedition law of
John Adams' administration, and to
establish a censorship of tho press of
tuo country at the federal capital, de
clares a purpose to silence all criticism
of the conduct of public men, and as
such demands tlic scvorest condemna
tion of every ficemcn in the land.
Kesolvcd, That tho fraacrt of our
constitut'on erected n system of gov
ernment the corner stone of which was
local control ot local afTairs, which for
nearly a century held the states in the
union as harmoniously as tho planets
hold tliolr plavtu In t)io liiwn., .-J:,
is amongst the gravest faults of the re
publican party that it has wantonly
overawed and prostituted the (,'overn
ment of the several states.
llcsolved, That tho civil service of
tho government should bo periormcd
by those who are found to bo best ciuali
fied therefor ; and'there is seen in tho
recent action of tho republican congress
on this subject a humiliating confession
that tho party in power cannot dispense
with tho jTop offered by public
HosoKcd, That the undeniable cor
ruptions pervadiug all departments of
the general government arc themselves
arguments against tho continuance of
the party now in power, and prool that
it deserves the righteous indignation of
llcsolved, That in the person of Jo
seph A. Titcotub, f Kcnnebunk, our
nominee for governor, we havo a states
men of cuiucut ability and integrity of
character, whose political views are
modeled after the democratic fathers of
tho republic, and as Mich wo commend

A new invention has just been tried
in J 'aria which is said to render drown
ing a thing of the past. It cousiuts in
tho employment of a pneumatic India
rubber tube rolled round tho body with
a sufficient number of folds to contain
tho necessary amount of nir. This
tubo is placed concealed in a double
envelope forming a shirt. It terminates
by n mouthpiece, winch shuts with tho
aid of a simple copper button. Tho
operation is simple in the extreme, mil
the swimmer or immersed person has
enough nir for a whole day. When
the npparatus comes to diminish i
volume, it is easy to expand it Pdan
by the principal "tube in deer water
without any effort or divtilty. The
trial was witness"' , at llcuO'

tends from the neck to the knee, fast
cued in front by n row of buttons. It
is composed of a double flannel, in the
midst of which an India rubber tube
circulates, starting from the top of the
chest, ascending tlic left side of the

the back ; thcro it divides in two
branches, encircling the thighs ns far
as the knees. From tho ccutral part
of the principal tube twelve or fifteen
lescr lubes diverge to make the round

Hot alum water is a recent sugues

red and black ants, cockroachc, spi

pests which infest our house. Take
two pounds of alum and dissolve it in
three or four quarts of boiling water ;
let it stand on the fire till the ulum dis

while nearly boiling hot, to every
joint and crevice in your closet, bed
stead, pantry t-helvcs. and the like.
Brush the crevices in the floor of the
skirting or mop boards, if you suspect
that they harbor vermin. If in white
washing a ceiling, plenty of alum is
added to the lime, it will also serve to
keep insects at a distance. Cockroaches

chalk mark half an inch in width will
set tho depredations at naught. Pow

chinch bugs at a respectable distance,

Ciiksteh, Iu.., Juno HI. The hog
diseaso in this county,- and spreading
throughout Southern Illinois it a fearlul
rate, is proving too much for those who
have attempted to deny its existence,
that only a few hogs had died, and the
reports herctoforo givon were mere im
